Giant Eagle Unveils New Good Cents Format
Multi-format food and fuel retailer Giant Eagle, Inc. will cut the ribbon this weekend on its first Good Cents Grocery + More store in Pittsburgh’s North Hills that company officials say offers “a uniquely fresh approach to value-priced grocery shopping.”
“This is the format people have been waiting for,” said Good Cents’ SVP John Tedesco. “Think of it as the missing link between discount stores and supermarkets,” he added, noting that the new concept store comes “at the perfect time, as families continue to struggle through a sluggish economy and rising food and commodity costs.”
Good Cents, Tedesco continued, “Reflects the real fresh – not real fancy – experience for customers who know how to recognize a great deal on high quality products.”
Providing extremely low prices on produce, deli, meat, cheese and grocery items, the Pittsburgh-based company’s new 46,000 square-foot store will feature a 3,800 square-foot produce section offering more than 230 conventional and organic produce items, a cheese department with more than 60 specialty items, a full-service deli and a fully-stocked meat department featuring meat cut and ground fresh in-store. It will also offer groceries with a popular mix of name brand national and regional brands alongside Food Club and Valu Time store brands.
Among the store’s “cent-sationally” low everyday prices include:
“While today’s shoppers are certainly looking to stretch their food budgets through affordable-priced shopping, they shouldn’t have to sacrifice quality and freshness,” said Tedesco.
To keep prices low, Good Cents focuses on lower operating costs, and will accordingly not accept checks as a form of tender and encourages customers to bring their own traditional and reusable bags. Customers may also purchase grocery bags for a nominal fee.
